Toledo Spirits distillery will open soon

Excerpts from a July 2015 Toledo City Paper article titled:

Toledo Spirits Co. set to release their first batch of whiskey

The planned release date is currently set for mid-July when 375ml bottles, priced at $60, will be limited to one per customer as the total batch is only 100 bottles.

After the initial release, Toledo Spirits Co.’s downtown tasting room will be open on Saturdays from 10am-5pm for sales and tasting.

The labels even don a cute mascot Wordsworth T. Fox who was designed by Toledo’s own Dustin Hostetler [upso].

More from the article:

It’s been a long time coming, considering prohibition ended 82 years ago and we’re just now getting a distillery in Toledo, but it’s felt even longer for Andrew Newby and Lukas Kummer who founded the company back in June of 2013.

The whiskey itself is the first edition of a lineup affectionately named Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, or more succinctly WTF.

Unlike traditional whiskey bases, WTF is actually distilled from a local brewer’s craft beer— Great Black Swamp’s Wild Duck IPA.

“The hops show through really nicely almost like a rye spice, it has a beautiful bourbon sweetness,” said Kummer. “It’s coming along fantastically.”

... the next plan is to launch a strawberry vodka called Heart of Glass which will be widely available at bars and liquor stores around the area ...

But if you can’t wait to get your hands on some locally crafted spirits, the distillery’s run of uniquely flavored bitters (Orange Tiger, Lemons in the Attic, Black Kite Coffee and Hopped Up On) have been available at venues around town.
